Spectrally yours

view highlights

PressView is all about quality assurance, process control and standardization in print production. The system works with most spectral measurement devices directly and can import a variety of data formats so you are not tied to a specific device brand for both hardware and software.

Its client/server based architecture guarantees a smooth implementation throughout your company where every user automatically works with the same data sets (e.g. color references, tolerances, measurement conditions, scoring, etc.). You can run the server from any location, local host, intranet or internet, giving you complete freedom of how you want to work.

The PressView client software acts as a comprehensive tool chest, providing role based color measurement and analysis tools for each type of user. Because of this, you can use PressView throughout your entire workflow. Set custom color targets during pre-production meetings, certify digital color proofs, analyze ink/substrate behavior and dry back, closed loop color control, post production quality analysis and reporting. All in one system.

PressView is designed to perform in any print environment. Digital print, commercial offset, web offset, gravure, screen and flexographic print. Whatever you print, we’ll guarantee your color quality.


Intuitive interface

PressView is highly appreciated for its intuitive interface. Press operators, managers and even your customer will understand the way PressView talks about color quality.

Standards supported

PressView is not only suited to implement ISO 12647 standards, but can handle any customer or in-company standard, giving you all the benefits of producing high quality standardized products. Even ‘old print jobs’ or print jobs of a colleague company can be taken as a reference.

Scalability, flexibility

The PressView system is scalable to the max. It can be used as a lightweight, webbased application, a stand alone quality system in a print room or as a complete color quality management system for multiple companies and groups. No matter the size of your company or the market you’re in: PressView will look after the quality of your products!

Database driven

PressView is a fully database driven system. This means that every user automatically works with the same information (e.g. references, spot colors, jobs, tolerances, etc.). There are no separate files to load or save, nor is there the need for third party applications like Microsoft Excel. Everything is automatically centrally stored and managed. The quality information is therefore available to all users of the system. Anytime, anywhere.

Advanced technology

Over the years, Colorware has developed advanced technologies to help you meet the required print quality. Colorware was the first to succesfully calculate the dry back effect of inks, so that you can measure wet sheets and predict what the dry sheet will look like for comparison with the (dry) standard. Now, PressView again has some unique features like the highly appreciated “Printability test” , “Chromaplus” and the custom “Color libraries” that lets you manage those important house styles and product colors as well.
